How To Add More Sorting Fields in Magento 2

Updated 27 February 2024

How To Add More Sorting Fields in Magento 2:- In this blog I’m going to explain how we can add more sorting fields on product collection page or category page.

In order to add more sorting fields you need to follow below steps.

Step 1: Make plugin of Class Magento\Catalog\Model\Config and Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ProductList\Toolbar  by defining it’s entry in di.xml.

So, lets create a di.xml file in app/code/Vendor/ModuleName/etc directory and write below code..

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <type name="Magento\Catalog\Model\Config">
        <plugin name="catalog_config_plugin" type="Vendor\ModuleName\Plugin\Config" />
    <type name="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ProductList\Toolbar">
        <plugin name="catalog_productlist_toolbar_plugin" type="Vendor\ModuleName\Plugin\Product\ProductList\Toolbar" />

Step 2: Create Config.php file under app/code/Vendor/ModuleName/Plugin directory and write below code.

namespace Vendor\ModuleName\Plugin;

class Config
    public function afterGetAttributeUsedForSortByArray(\Magento\Catalog\Model\Config $catalogConfig, $options)
        $customOption['latest'] = __("Latest Product");
        $options = array_merge($options,$customOption);

        return $options;

This will add a new sorting field.

Step 3: Create Toolbar.php file under Vendor\ModuleName\Plugin\Product\ProductList directory and write below code.

namespace Vendor\ModuleName\Plugin\Product\ProductList;

class Toolbar
    public function aroundSetCollection(
        \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\ProductList\Toolbar $subject,
        \Closure $proceed,
    ) {
        $currentOrder = $subject->getCurrentOrder();
        if ($currentOrder == "latest ) {
            $dir = $subject->getCurrentDirection();
            $collection->getSelect()->order('created_at '.$dir); // you can add filter as per your requirement.
        return $proceed($collection);

In this way we can add custom sorting fields as per our requirement.. hope it will be helpful for you. 🙂
